The ECB today announced, The Hundred’s music line-up is headlined by one of the UK’s most successful dance acts of the last decade, Rudimental, who will take to the stage at The Hundred Final at Lord’s on Sunday 27 August.
Launched in 2021, The Hundred is cricket’s newest innovation, bringing together high-octane cricket with spectacular entertainment. For the third year running, The Hundred has curated its music line-up in collaboration with BBC Music Introducing. The partnership gives BBC Music Introducing artists a platform to perform live in front of record-breaking crowds at the UK’s biggest cricket grounds, including Lord’s (London), The Kia Oval (London), Edgbaston (Birmingham), Emirates Old Trafford (Manchester), Sophia Gardens (Cardiff), Headingley (Leeds), Ageas Bowl (Southampton) and Trent Bridge (Nottingham).
Brit and MOBO award-winning group, Rudimental, said: “We’re excited to perform at The Hundred Final this year. We’re massive sports fans so we’re looking forward to the matches. Also, we love that BBC Music Introducing is involved as we’re big supporters of working with emerging talent, so this is a fantastic platform for sports fans to pick up on new music. Looking forward to performing at this great event.”
In its first two years, The Hundred has played host to some of the biggest names in UK music including previous headliners at Lord’s Bastille and Jax Jones, as well as Becky Hill, Everything Everything and Self Esteem.
Lauren Winfield-Hill, Oval Invincibles star said, “The music last year was amazing, and as winners of the women’s tournament, we were lucky enough to see Bastille perform live at Lord’s. It really added to the excitement and atmosphere of The Hundred, showing that the tournament is about unmissable action on and off the pitch. I can’t wait to get a front row seat this summer and hopefully the chance to dance to Rudimental at the Final.”
